Constance & Buckham's Bay Community Association - Annual General Meeting

  • Constance Bay Comm Centre, 262 Len Purcell Dr. (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Everyone is encouraged to attend the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association Inc Annual General Meeting on July 14 at 1pm. All positions are up for election and five critical positions will be vacant. Please join us to say thank you to the board, your volunteers, and retiring Directors.

The Board and volunteers of a Community Association determine how much an Association can achieve, if it will engage in any particular issue, and if it will be relevant or important to the community as a whole. In recent years very few communities have risen to as many challenges or proven to be as resilient or effective as our CBBCA community; expanding our facilities, growing our base of program opportunities, improving access to services, responding to three emergencies, and helping to form West Carleton Disaster Relief; it has been a rewarding time for our Board members and volunteers.

In 2019 the Board of your Community Association will undergo dramatic change and new hands, ideas, and leadership are needed. If we don’t get these leaders the growth we have enjoyed will not be sustainable and new opportunities will not come to fruition. In 2019 the positions of President (Len Russell), Vice-President (Ian Glen), Secretary (Graham Ginsberg), and Youth Sports (Ryan Keeling) will not be standing for re-election; they will stand in an ‘At Large’ capacity to support the new leadership. Also of very significant consequence, Past President Angela Bernhardt will not be returning. In five short years Angela has made many exceptional contributions to our community and to WCDR and will be sorely missed.

Please consider joining the team or at least coming out to elect your new board. You can put your name forward by dropping us an email or calling 832-1225.

1:00 PM: Call to Order Len Russell
